Back to the 1930's - packing the courts all over again

Democrats try to pack the courts

The Supreme Court has been choosing to consider fewer cases each year. This means the lower courts provide the final disposition for a larger percentage of controversies than ever before. Packing those courts with new, loyal liberals can thus have a huge effect on legal issues without the high profile - and public backlash - of unpopular Supreme Court decisions and fringe appointments to the high court.

In other words, packing the federal courts at the district court and appellate court level is a stealthy way to enlarge Democrat influence over the judicial system and over legal and Constitution issues in general.
